Just a question Pm, to clarify something.  I seem to recall in earlier
discussions of this that GroupHeaders and GroupFooters would continue
to work as in the past.  That is {$vars} would act the same  as
{*vars} if coming from a groupheader or groupfooter page.  Is that
correct?  What if I include a groupheader from another group?  And if
it does keep its original behavior, can you force normal {$vars}
behavior in those groups?

I'm not in a place to check this on my system right now, but thought
maybe this question should be clarified to others on the list.

The way you are using the basepage variable is brilliant. A great
idea!  And as for text variables I can't wait to get them!
